Worst Episode ever
4 October 2013 | by (UK) – See all my reviews


Okay let's start with the good - the stunts were impressive and there was a decent amount of destruction going on.

Hem, that's it. This was by some way the worst episode of this up and down series yet - and yes that includes the episodes where Steve stages a one man invasion of North Korea...


Can anyone explain to me the plan of the terrorists? So they knew where Wo-Fat was being held and were able to storm a massively defended prison cell (with only four guys - okay), but they then storm a second well defended target to shoot the one surviving member of the original storming team? Or was the data download of Kono's location their real target? So they were in the employ of the Yakuza?, so why the suicide pact?

Okay, let's chalk that one up to the on-going plot madness.

Where did the machine-guns come from? The terrorists were set free by McGarrett and Danno and flee in Danny's Camaro, followed by Chin-Ho. Next time they stop the car, all four of them have long barrel full-auto rifles. Presumably they didn't stop somewhere and buy them (as Chin-Ho would have, I hope, noticed), where did they come from? Steve's secret stash in the trunk?

Nope, poor writing that's where that came from. And GM's requirement that Danny stops driving a 4-year old model of car, maybe?

Let's not even try to figure out how three big blokes and one girl are all able to get out of a two-door coupe, with long barrel weaponry, and while firing on a target? Not a chance.

It got worse, amazingly.

So the NLM big bad is on the island and has been there long enough to engineer a breakdown in Katherine's Corvette in order to kidnap her, but not long enough to charter a helicopter or boat, or rent some form of safe-house. Instead they steal a TV helicopter. Why? Hawaii's full of charter helicopter businesses, we've seen them enough in the series

  • Hell, Kamekona's got one. Why steal a helicopter that is guaranteed

to be missed by its owners? OK, maybe it's the only one they could steal, but if you have a stolen helicopter, surely landing it in the middle of the local football stadium is not the most subtle of hiding places?

Anyway, so you are the terrorists and you've gotten clean away - Chin's car's shot to pieces, the Camaro is on fire, Steve and Danny are in a van, and all three of them say the bad guys have gotten away. So why not drive like a lunatic?

Oh and you've got a van with five compatriots in it heading for a helicopter that has four, maybe five seats, but already has one pilot and one armed goon sitting on the halfway line, waiting.

Basically it's one of the worst thought out 'bad guy plan' I've seen in a long time. I'm not a pedant, I'm more than happy to let plot holes pass by, but this episode was an insult to my intelligence. It was rushed, sloppy, shoddy and frankly terrible.

Action aside, which was nicely staged, and Chi McBride's introduction, this was a terrible episode. I can only hope it improves.
